Werder keen on signing Carew from Lyon

January 15, 2007

BERLIN, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Werder Bremen have confirmed they are interested in signing Norwegian striker John Carew from Olympique Lyon.

'He's one of the players we're interested in,' Werder manager Klaus Allofs told German media. 'The transfer conditions would have to be right.'

Werder lead the Bundesliga on goal difference from Schalke 04 at the halfway stage of the season.

Scoring goals has hardly been a problem for them this season, with 47 in 17 games so far, but they could lose German international Miroslav Klose who is interested in a move abroad.
